Based upon a classic 1940s dress style that is flattering and feminine. "Rita" is available in a range of vintage inspired prints illustrated by the London designer Bryony Richardson. Bryony takes pride in her designs and bring a slow fashion approach to her work focussing on ethical and sustainable production.
We often repeat the Rita 1940s dress in different prints each season.
This 1940s dress is surprisingly versatile, combine it with, cardigans, tights, accessories and shoes to highlight different colours.
The dress nips in under the bust and very high on the waist before flaring out into a 7-panel A-line skirt which also has pockets!
The Rita is fastened with an invisible side zip and is unlined, so is perfect for wearing with under layers and coloured tights!
The cap tulip sleeves allow for complete ease of movement, and the deep cross over V neck will suit all busts. Some of you may find you need a little stitch or discreet pinning at the bust to keep everything securely in place.
For accessories, it will work superbly with any block colour cardigan. To have a look at our current knitwear options, click here.
We think this will work beautifully on all body shapes, especially hourglasses and pears, as it nips in at the waist. Therefore please choose your size according to waist measurement (in cm).
